Out of Control! ‘RHONY’ Star Admits to “Self-Medicating” and Having at Least Seven Drinks a Day

"Alcohol just stopped working for me"

Having a drink or two with dinner is no big deal. But when you’re Luann de Lesseps, it can lead to a downward spiral.

The Real Housewives of New York City star is speaking out about her issues with alcohol three months after she was arrested for attacking a police officer, trespassing, and disorderly intoxication. Now out of rehab following her run-in with the law, the 52-year-old admits she had been heading down a dark path, confessing she was “self-medicating” and abusing alcohol before prior to her headline-making bust.
